B,folic acid and c: Vitsmin supplements can help in some case, but vitiligo is best safely treated. Ybexcimer laser or narrow band uvb in office.

You may have: A form of fungus known as tinea versicolor. Try applying an antifungal cream twice a day until disappears. This may take 2-4 weeks if indeed it is secondary to the fungus.
